It’s all about “Survivor” to start off. Great finale last night and after Jeremy’s mic drop at the final tribal council, you pretty much knew he’d win. Did I think he’d win 10-0-0? No. But that showed his dominance. EW’s Dalton Ross has your recap for now, as Bryan Fischer’s will be up sometime in the next couple days. He actually attended the live finale last night, so I’m sure we’ll get some good stuff coming from that. If anything, I’m loyal to my shows. I’ve all told you about my “24” and “Friday Night Lights” obsession numerous times, but there are three reality shows that I’ve seen every episode of: “Survivor,” “Idol,” and “DWTS.” That’s crazy when I think about it. 31 seasons of “Survivor,” 14 seasons of “Idol” and I forget how many of DWTS. Over 20 now I believe. Since I missed the first two seasons of the “Bachelor,” they’re up there, but can’t say I’ve watched every one. But having written episode recaps for 28 of the completed 30 seasons spanning over 10 years must count for something, right? Despite all that, “Survivor” will always be my favorite reality show, and it’s really not even close. I’d never play it, have zero interest in ever going on it, but I’ll watch it religiously. Kudos to another excellent season and I hope this show never ends.
-As for next season, here’s the info for Brains vs Brawn vs Beauty 2 that you need going in to next season. Jeff Probst also previewed next season in his weekly chat with EW, and I think we can all say the most interesting (and maybe disappointing) thing about next season is that it was filmed last March/April before “Second Chance” was filmed. First time they’ve ever shown seasons out of the order they were filmed. I say maybe disappointing because anything we saw in this great season won’t be referenced or possibly duplicated because the season 32 cast never saw it. However, that also means you can get away with another season of hiding idols at immunity challenges since none of those people will have seen that before so they won’t be on the lookout. I’ll be watching as always since this remains the best reality show on television after 31 seasons.
-I don’t think in all the “Daily Links” I’ve ever done I ever linked to someone’s recipe for a dinner. However, when it’s from Katie Cassidy and she’s making my favorite chicken parm, well, then it needs to be done. There isn’t a chicken parm at any restaurant I’ve ever had where I said, “You know, that was terrible.” In fact, quite the opposite. You really have to be a major f**k up in the kitchen if you can’t make a good chicken parm. “Chicken parm you taste so goooooood…”
-Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama got their inner “Dirty Dancing” on while vacationing in St. Barts. Granted, it doesn’t quite live up to the original from Patrick and Jennifer (or even Derek and Bindi for that matter), but hey, A for effort guys. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, man, Demi just does it for me and I have no idea why. I don’t really have a type, but if I did, Demi wouldn’t really be it. Yet, I’ve always found her attractive if that makes any sense.
-Kourtney and the Biebs are apparently still humping like rabbits, but it’s just for fun according to sources. This is pretty wrong on basically every level you can think of, and it’s obviously rebound sex for Kourtney, but couldn’t she be a little more discretionary? She couldn’t find anyone better than that? Now granted, this is all for media publicity, I get it, but the kid is barely of legal drinking age. Bad look.
-And as if Kourtney isn’t already getting enough attention with the Biebs, she went on Instagram and decided to show the world her butt. Ummmmm, thanks? Maybe it’s a cry out to Scott of, “Look what you’re missing big boy.” Or maybe it’s a cry out to Justin of, “Hey, want some more of this?” Whatever it is, I don’t know why she did it. Then again, I don’t know why the Kardashians really do anything they do, so I guess this is just par for the course.
-Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting the winter finale of SNL this weekend. Here are the promos:
-Screech is going to jail. After the new year, Dustin Diamond will spend four months in the clink for stabbing someone earlier this year. I don’t know much about the law, but I know that if you take a knife and plunge it in to another person, that’s not a good thing. And you’re probably being arrested for it. How Screech didn’t know this is beyond me. Mr. Belding will be very disappointed in him.
-We have an Amanda Bynes sighting looking rather normal. I’m not really sure exactly what she’s up to nowadays, but wasn’t the world more exciting when Amanda Bynes was giving us gold on social media? I mean, yay for cleaning yourself up and all, but I kinda miss crazy Amanda and her antics. I miss the wigs, the homeless look, and wandering around places talking to yourself. C’mon, for old times’ sake, bring that back. If just for a weekend.
-Miley Cyrus has a half brother named Trace. I had no idea. And if you already knew that, did you know he looked like this? His body, he can do what he wants with it, but I’m here to tell you Trace, you look like a f***ing idiot. Man, I thought Miley was a bit messed up. Yikes.
-Kaley Cuoco has a new boyfriend and I’m scared. She’s dating current “Arrow” actor, Paul Blackthorne. Kaley likes her older men that’s for sure. But Kaley, in case no one’s mentioned this to you – that’s Stephen Saunders from season 3 of “24”!!!!! He tried to release a virus in Los Angeles that would’ve wiped out most of the city!!! Run!!!!!
-And finally, the first trailer for “Fuller House,” coming out on Netflix in February has been released. We don’t see any of the actors, but we hear them:
